I volunteered

this morning for Vote No on Proposition 8 in Silver Lake. I've been a little under the weather the last few days and almost talked myself out of it, but I'm glad I didn't; it felt good to do my part to protect California's marriage equality. I'll probably go back and help out again if anyone wants to join me.

I called 90 phone numbers, talked to some supporters, and even got a donation out of someone. There were even a couple of notable folks making calls in the room, including Chad Allen, who spoke to us all at the end of the event. He seemed nice. Christine Chavez was there too, and she educated us all on how her grandfather Cesar Chavez was just as concerned about LGBT issues as he was about the UFW, which was new to me.

If you're in California, you should check out the website and volunteer or donate. Although I suppose you could donate even if you weren't in California. By all means do!
